Life: It Goes On - January 11

You know, it felt kind of good to get back into something resembling a routine this week. We ate better, we got back to our walking routine, and I had time to read and get things done around the house. We've already been out walking this morning (and by "out," I mean to the YMCA). I can understand why so many like to get up and get their workouts in early; it's nice to have it out of the way and have the day to use the energy it give you. I'm still not getting up and working out before I go to work, though!

This Week I'm:

Listening To: I'll finish listening to this season of "Serial" this week then I'm hoping to get to the library book sale to find some books to listen to for the rest of the week. I've listened to more music this week - lots of 80's alternative music, some classical stuff, and some angry young men rock.

Watching: Not everything I'd like to thanks to a pissing match between our cable carrier and the corporation that owns our local NBC affiliate. It's probably going to result in us looking for a new cable and internet carrier this week. What a pain!

Yesterday, Miss H came over to do laundry and she and I watched "Crazy Stupid Love." So many great laughs!

Reading: I read my first Jane Green book this week, her latest "Saving Grace." Midway through, I tweeted that I felt like it could have been much better. To which I received a response from Ms. Green. No doubt she felt like some schmuck like me had no business make that call and I did feel bad that she had seen it. But I stick with that opinion. My review will post this week.

Making: Pizza, beef enchiladas, chicken and noodles, chocolate chip cookies and prickly pear margaritas. The best thing that was made in my kitchen this week wasn't made by me, though. Mini-me and his girlfriend came out Friday night and cooked tamales that they'd put together earlier. Delicious!

Planning: On finishing up my kitchen sorting this week. I'd like to free up enough space to do a little reorganizing but I'm not sure that will happen until I get our new bar area set up later this spring. Then I'm on to the dining room.

Grateful for: Time with each of my kids this week.

Enjoying: I got to have lunch with two friends this week, one of whom I haven't seen in a couple of years. We all used to work together and I miss seeing them every day. Time with old friends is good for the soul.

Feeling: Happy today - the sun is shining, the temperatures are tolerable today, and I'm kicking butt around the house. Life is good!

Looking forward to: Drinks with girlfriends this week. Some poor bartender will have to put up with us for several hours! What are you looking forward to this week?
